WAVERLY (KWWL) -

At 94 years old, a lot of people aren't out trying new things.

That's not the case for one Waverly man.

Maurice Campbell lives at at Bartel's Lutheran Retirement Community in Waverly.

Not long ago, he fell and broke bones his neck.

During his recovery he decided to make some changes. He started something he'd always wanted to do, learn to play the guitar.

Maurice says he just wants to keep learning and doing things, not sit around and waste retirement. 

He got a standing ovation after performing in his first music concert. 

Maurice played two songs, You Are My Sunshine and Ring of Fire, at his first concert.

He played with 14 children ages 5 to 13.
